    Overwhelmed

    7
    I am new here and honestly I never thought I would be in this situation which I'm sure no one thought that are on here. I have been with my significant other since we were 14 years old then we got married. We have been married for 7 years. We have had our ups and down, but a few months ago my world was turned upside down. I am a nurse and was working overnights and we text throughout the night. I...

    HI Everyone,I am new here and my family experienced a traumatic shock a month ago when our 15-year-old son was accused of inappropriate touching with a 10-year old family member (the incident happened a year ago.) After interviews with the local detectives and social worker our son admitted to also touching our 12-year-old daughter when she was 9 years old.   While he hasn't been charged with a...
  • I posted this on another board, but I feel the need to keep all you mothers, GFs, and wives of offenders up to date to show you that we are slowly winning this battle for fair treatment.  Yes, it is slow, but we are doing well through court decisions on a state-by-state basis.  I will continue to keep you wonderful ladies...

    Hi I'm new here. My adult son in his 30s lives with me and is trying to get disability for ADD, Asbergers etc. In April the FBI came banging on the door and did a search and seized computer for CP. He had dled porn videos on Torrent and according to him CP by mistake. He was very honest with their interview. Well after almost 3 mths, 2 days ago they came and got him and indicted him on...

    Old friends

    6
    Today I went out with some old friends. Trying to keep up appearances that everything's good. I've told them that my husband and I are planning on divorcing and of course this brought on a plethora of questions. I've come to realize that I am a very good liar. I will not tell anyone what my husband did. That's between him and me. I still have love for him, even though I can't be in love with him...

    Apology?

    3
    Today I got a letter from my husband. To paraphrase, he misses me, hated me for leaving him and knows I'm never coming back. And that's it. He wrote me a 3 page letter explaining how he deserves whatever punishment he gets and how he will miss me. The words 'I'm sorry' never came up. He never once apologized for the suffering he put me through. He never apologized for throwing away our 10 year...

    I tried very hard for a long time

    Hi all, I thought it might be helpful for me to come on here and share my story and maybe even chat in the comments with some of you, since my story is one I have kept to myself for so long. I have recently broken up with my SO boyfriend of 4+ years, and though we are no longer together, the sadness, upset and confusion caused by his crime linger on for me. I never spoke to anybody about his...

    Hope for Those Worried About The Future

    1
    “Two decades after Ohio began labeling sex offenders on a public database and setting restrictions on where they can live, a major overhaul to the law is being proposed that could drop thousands of lower-level offenders off the list.“Some critics are even calling for doing away with the registry entirely, saying it’s been an expensive effort with little benefit to the...

    Laws and Progress Made in Our Quest for Fairness

    I wanted to post this to give the new folks some hope that the sex offender registration laws are slowly being pushed back in our favor.  I realize that some of your days are dark indeed, but there are rays of sunshine trying to peek through the clouds.Sometimes hope for a better future is all we really have.I know it is easy to be so discouraged and lose all hope.  I see the diminished hope on...

    When does it stop hurting

    My boyfriend has just pleaded guilty for transportation of child porn. He has been locked up since September and his public defender told him and me there was nothing to fight he was just going to have to plead guilty. And i am so mad and angry that he gave up and the fact that the system has been so wrong to him that made him feel like it was the only thing to do.

    Feeling hopeless

    4
    I made a post a couple of days ago about my boyfriend being charged with posession and distribution of CP. Things were bad at that time, but now they're worse. They're still denying him a public defender because we own property together (one house and one car), however, the property has negative equity. We owe more than what it's worth, we have only owned the house for 2 years and the car for...

    Bill Of Rights

    0
    We were givin by our fore fathers the constitution and our bill of rights.   The fact that you have been convicted of a sex offence that you did or did not commit, or any other crime which a person finds himself labeled as a felon, should not  take away your rights as a free American.  I get it, you commit a crime and you pay for it.  That's justice.  But  after that, you are intitled to...

    I still love him

    Today was terrifying. The cops stormed my house with guns and arrested my husband of 14 years for possession of child pornography. I had no idea whatsoever that he was doing that. I knew he used to look at adult porn before we were married, but I thought he had stopped all that.I am bewildered and scared and confused, but I still love him, because I know the real man that he is. He's the man who...

    Hi, 2 and 1/2 years ago my husband was arrested for possession of CP. I had no idea but my husband suffers from severe mental health issues. He viewed it for only 2 weeks. He originally had two counts but on 6/29/17 he took the plea of one count and is now at county to be transferred to prison to serve two years. I'm kinda freaking out. I've never lived alone and I miss him like crazy. My...
